lrk1203:  we had our wedding ON mothers day. I will say our mothers loved it! They were so excited to be there for our wedding day on mothers day. We also did have a destination wedding so they got to be in key west for that day also. 

To make it more special, I gave his mom a gift and he gave my mom a gift because we would officially be their new children(inlaw)

Wedding date twins! I don’t think it’s a big deal considering Mother’s Day is Sunday, and the wedding is Saturday. Maybe it’ll be a good excuse for some couples to get out!

Maybe in different parts of the country it’s different, but where I am from, Mother’s Day is a big deal…sure, it is a Hallmark holiday, but I would feel bad if EVERYONE my mom knew was out “celebrating” Mother’s Day and my mom was home alone.

My only word of caution is to consider college graduations. I’m from the Midwest, and almost all of our colleges (private and public) have graduations on that weekend every year. That aside, I don’t see anything wrong with that weekend!

I’m having my wedding on father’s day. I talked to him about it first and with other father’s who ate invited and they are fine with it. 

Also, me and my siblings ate giving him a special gift after the father daughter dance so I think that will be nice. 

I think you should double check with people and honor the mothers somehow during the reception, even if it’s just saying happy mothers day!

Whether or not this is a good idea depends … do you want everyone you invite to come? Or would you have an interest, financial or otherwise, in keeping the guest list down a bit? Does that make sense?

ct2015:  I was in the same boat, ct, for years I helped my aging mother until she died. She was not one to let that kind of opinion and judgment affect us.

If anyone were to hint that I was out carousing at a wedding while my mom ate gruel and grit at home alone with the spiders, I would tell them to mind their own damn business.

I always gave my mom cards, flowers, gifts for Mother’s Day, and other days besides. But we didn’t always go to dinner on the day of, restaurants are too crowded.
